Susan English Periphery at Kathryn Markel Fine Art

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Susan English. At the core of this new body of work are the ideas of space, boundaries, and perception. The periphery is defined as the outer limit or the edge of a place or an object – a dropping off point. English is drawn to the expansive spaces where the horizon is seen as an edge, one that might be perceived only indirectly or unconsciously. The works range of color represents an intersection of the inside and the outside, as well as the limits of color. How far can green be pushed before it becomes blue? How many infinite directions can you push a brown or a gray or a white? A vibrancy and subtle hum of energy is created in the peripheral area between hues, and in the moments where the color is it’s most concentrated. The exploration of space both conscious and subconscious, where the known meets the unknown is a driving force behind the work in Periphery.

Exhibition ongoing through May 4th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Nancy Cohen’s Force: Observations from the Interior

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Nancy Cohen – Force: Observations from the Interior March 28th – May 4th, 2019. In this most recent body of work, Nancy Cohen continues her exploration of waterways and their human like existence – persevering under constant adversity from outside forces. The imagery derives from memories of particular landscapes Cohen has encountered. Of them, the Samana Bay in the Dominican Republic and the tides of Eastport, Maine, have left a lasting impression on Cohen and are the driving force behind this series. Samana Bay, and a good portion of the Dominican Republic’s natural landscape, has seen the devastating effects of pollution and industry, devastation Cohen witnessed first hand.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents A Sense of Place: New Works by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present A Sense of Place: New Work by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood, opening on Thursday, February 28, with a reception from 6-8 pm, and remaining on view through April 11. The exhibition features monotypes by Rachel Burgess and paintings on wood panel and paper by James Isherwood. This exhibition is Burgess’s second one at SEFA, and Isherwood, a Gallery Artist since 2008, has been featured in many group and two person exhibitions at SEFA. 

The coastal landscapes of Maine have been the main source of inspiration for Rachel Burgess for many years. Burgess’s ongoing fascination with how land meets water— along rivers, lakes and the seaside—fuels the creation of her stunning, expressive painterly monotypes. Burgess’s landscapes are spare, punctuated by an occasional house or lighthouse. Trees and bushes sometimes line the coastal edges, but they are not the main attraction, which is always where the water meets the uninterrupted horizon line, where grassy green melts seamlessly into watery edges.

In James Isherwood’s recent landscapes, elements are rarely as expected. Skies are bright pink or yellow, the grass is not always green and the mountain ranges can be neon orange. In these enigmatic paintings Isherwood has found a place where fantasy and reality merge to create a third zone, led by imagination and memory. An Isherwood landscape might evoke the memory of a real place, tickle the feeling of a hillside or a pool of water. Yet, these are impossible, surreal scenes, built up with fragmented, architectural structures, set in otherworldly landscapes; yet compositions are utterly harmonious with elements, man made and natural, all in synch. Painter Rene Magritte comes to mind in the clean edges of fantastic tree lines, silhouetted against night skies, populated with a density of tiny stars.

ODETTA presents Falling into Place

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Falling into Place with Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro.

Using gravity as a tool for their image making, these three artists works move us to consider more seriously the connection between abstraction and self-portrait. Through invented systems that nudge their materials along until their artwork makes itself, Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro playfully poke at the larger effects we all must endure as our planet spins. By attempting to harness the Earth and Moon’s magnetic pull, we see in these three a common personality emerge, artist/explorer, author and spectator.

Exhibition closes February 24th, 2019. Artists talk on Sunday February 17th at 3:00pm.
